L.A. Noire’s VR Case Files delayed to December


Take-Two’s upcoming remastered edition of L.A. Noire is coming later this month. Previously, it was scheduled to launch alongside L.A. Noire: VR Case Files, a set of selected missions built for the ground up with virtual reality in mind. That will no longer be happening, as the game has been delayed until December. 

The news comes by way of publisher Take-Two Games’ earnings report, where the HTC Vive-centric title was confirmed to have been pushed back a month.

The game is a collection of seven special cases pulled from the original L.A. Noire, completely rebuilt to support virtual reality-based interactions. You’ll be able to use the HTC Vive’s controllers to inspect clues, draw freehand in the clue notebook, interact with objects in the environment, and more. 

L.A. Noire: VR Case Files was previously poised to hit store shelves alongside the remastered version of the noir-soaked crime drama on Nov. 14, which is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch. Unfortunately there’s no new timetable for when in December we can expect to see the newly-minted VR companion title emerge.
